Combine the garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, paprika, chipotle powder, oregano, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Brush a small amount of olive oil onto both sides of the salmon and generously season the salmon on both sides with the spice blend.
Next add the olive oil to the 12” stainless steel rondeau pot over medium high heat and add the fish.
Place the butter into the pan to help brown the fish and flip it over. Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown but not cooked through and then remove the salmon from the pan and set it aside.
Turn the heat up to high and add in the peppers and onions and lightly char, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Place the salmon on top of the roasted peppers and onions and transfer the pan to the oven and cook for 10 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and break up the fish using two forks.
To Plate: Place some salmon, roasted pepper and onions onto a tortilla shell and add optional garnishes.
Always look to purchasewild caught salmon over farm raised. It is more sustainable, is better for the environment and the taste is far superior.
You can absolutely make this spice rub customizable and tweak the amount of spices that are in it or even add to it. For instance you could add cumin to it, or add more chipotle powder for a zestier taste.
Cooking in the oven will help finish the salmon off while allowing the zesty spices and juices to run down and season up the peppers and onions as well.
